The Best Podcast for The Last of Us

Wayfarin’ Strangers is a must-listen for any Last of Us fan. The Last of Us games are my favorite pieces of media ever and it’s so refreshing and wonderful to listen to the hosts, Jac and Andrew, discuss them with more insight, thought, nuance, and enthusiasm than any other podcast or YouTube channel that I’ve watched or listened to. Wayfarin’ Strangers is quite definitively the best source for discussions about The Last of Us franchise and I can’t it recommend enough.

Must listen!

I spent months trying to find a podcast that not only discussed The Last of Us series, but one that also took a deep dive into the storytelling, lore, game mechanics, and general all around goodness that the team at Naughty Dog provides us with. That’s when I stumbled across Wayfarin’ Strangers (formerly Sundown Promises) in early 2021, a tiny podcast with only one episode! I was hooked from the start, because you get all of that and then some. As a woman who loves video games and The Last of Us, I deeply resonated with Jack and Barb’s love for the game. The attention to detail in describing the events of the game to listeners was (and still is!) incredible. I will admit, I was a bit nervous and sad to see Barb depart, but the addition of Andrew to the podcast offered a fresh perspective and my worries were gone immediately. Full of chemistry, humor, and the occasional tangent, Wayfarin’ Strangers feels like a couple of hours spent each week chatting with your close friends. Keep up the great work!

Jack has to chill out

Tlou is absolutely my favorite game of all time and I love toying with different theories. Jack hops between playful banter and being overly defensive. Andrew is a fantastic comic relief when the latter occurs. But you can tell he has to lay a sugarcoating foundation before giving an opposing opinion/theory as if to avoid insulting or upsetting jack. Which is just not a fun dynamic to listen to. I’ll maybe listen occasionally, but probably only when there’s big news worth listening to
